Archie at Riverdale High differed from most Archie Series comic books in the following ways:
- The cover of the book displayed a teaser for one of the stories inside, complete with a "Don't miss..." description. For most Archie comics of the time, the cover had a gag bearing little connection to the inside material.
- At least one of the stories—usually the cover story—had a more serious tone than the usual fare; it either taught a moral lesson, or portrayed the gang being thrown into a dangerous (sometimes life-or-death) situation.
- At least one of the stories—including the aforementioned "serious" one—was often but not always 10 pages long, rather than the usual five or six pages. Some of the issues had 2 10-page stories, rather than the usual 4 5-page sequences.
The comic Life with Archie had a similar format.
